Winter sampler....

Magic Hat Winterland Variety....$14.99 / 12pk
Includes 3 bottles each of
Encore IPA
A genre - blending mix of an American wheat beer and a traditional India Pale Ale. Encore is hopped and dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops, and has a pleasant grapefruit aroma that compliments its subtly sweet malty backbone. Grab a lighter and get up front!
Not Quite Pale Ale
A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it
Black-As-Night Winter Lager
Born of dark and cold and snow in the marrow of the northeast's longest night, HOWL comes in on wailing winds with winter-weary eyes burning holes in sunless shadows. In its darkened depths out inner voids are warmed.
Odd Notion 2010
A red ale with a subtle spice and a slight zing from rye and Hibiscus petals.

Col des Vents Corbieres

“...offers a sweet perfume of black fruits, grilled herbs, and a touch of earth. There is terrific fruit on the attack, medium body, and a clean, pure finish….” —The Wine Advocate

Odell Mountain Standard Double Black IPA...$12.99 / 750ml

"As the Colorado hop growers prove they can produce world class hops, we as a Colorado Craft Brewer want to showcase what our state can offer, not only with our hand crafted beers, but also with the ingredients used in creating them. Mountain Standard, Double Black IPA, features the homegrown hops our Brewers helped pick from farms along Colorado’s western slope. MST pours committingly dark with a light tan head and a slightly roasted hoppy nose. An ephemeral bitterness, the result of combining roasted malts with an assertive American hop profile, contributes to MST’s act of balance and harmony. As the season’s darkness sets in, why shouldn’t your beer become darker too?"

2009 Villa des Anges Cabernet Sauvignon....$9.99
2009 has not been rated yet, but it is better than the 2008, and this is what The Wine Advcocate said about the 2008...
"Villa des Anges 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is as remarkable and improbable a wine value as I have tasted in years....done the seemingly impossible – even forgetting the price – by crafting a full-bodied, subtly oily-textured, palpably dense, lip-smacking, not vegetal, yet not sweet Cabernet in the’ll want some of this just to stump other wine snobs in blind tastings....and who knows, perhaps the 2009 will be even better. ." -- The Wine Advocate
